Dark Philly Adult Night Tour

343 reviews
Leave the kids at home, because this night tour of Philly is strictly R-rated. Be led along the darker streets of the city, hearing stories of hauntings, executions, vampires, and other chilling tales. See the city's beautiful historic buildings lit up at night, and find out facts about them that you won't hear on standard daytime tours.

We saw Fiddler on the Roof at the Academy of Music. These were the worst seats that I have ever had. The seats were obstructed view with a large pillar situated directly in front of my seat. These tickets were not discounted nor were they advertised as obstructed view, which they should have been advertised as then I would not have purchased them. Overall horrible experience since I haaad to crane my neck to see around the pillar and was extremely uncomfortable and probably missed much of the performance. There is no way of knowing that you might have an obstructed view therefore skip seeing anything at the Academy of Music! Particularly sad since we also had a whelchir acccessible seat and had to move that seat out so that seat was not also obstructed.

Maybe, when you spend over 100.00 to see a show and then go to the stage door to congratulate the performers and get programs signed, maybe don't be a jerk and tell at people for standing. Hire better doorman at your stage door. The fans are there to see the amazing performers, not be belittled by doormen who think they have more power than they do.

Took granddaughters to Nick Jr. show. Enjoyed show but seating was tight! Academy has old school feel. Views are good from most seats. Staff very helpful and friendly.

We went to see Verdi's Requim this past weekend and the show was amazing. We had an issue with the seats in the Family Section which were VERY uncomfortable. No leg room whatsoever and the back was at a 90 degree straight up angle. Scrunched the entire time. With that being said, the reason I am giving 5 stars is two reasons: 1. The show was amazing 2. I called Opera Philadelphia to give feedback regarding the issue my wife and I had with the seats and they took care of me. No hesitation. The gentleman I talked to was able to help me and truly hear my concerns. Swift, smooth, and very customer friendly. We will definitely return for another show.

It is always an immense pleasure to see performances in Academy of Music. Last night we saw Verdi's Requiem and prior to it the Christmas season Tchayovsky's Nutcracker. Since January 1857 this pearl of American Baroque Revival is one of the prominent concert halls in the country. Objectively from the perspective of being a Kimmel Hall subscription concert goer the acoustic in Kimmel is much better to my ear than the Academy. Still it is a pleasure to enjoy this glorious oldie-goldie. Best parking is in Symphony House and reserved on line.
